SELWYN TIMES Tuesday January 31 2017 13 Your Local Views Maintaining trust and confidence Canterbury district police commander Superintendent John Price talks about modern day policing I am extremely proud of the police team who serve the people and make a difference to the community every minute of every day as our team keep the peace and ensure the public will be safe and feel safe. In New Zealand, our police have the implicit consent of the community. In order to do this, we must be seen as policing with integrity and with accountability. Essentially, we must have the trust and confidence of the community. Policing by consent follows the principles, ideas and ideals of Sir Robert Peel, which define an ethical police organisation. These ‘Peelian Principles’ are as relevant today as they were in 1829 when they were established. Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public, and the public are the police. We maintain the highest level of ‘full trust and confidence’ of any policing organisation in the world, at about 80 per cent. By comparison, some policing jurisdictions have trust and confidence levels lower that 10 per cent, demonstrating that those organisations are not widely seen as ethical and trustworthy. If you have travelled overseas, you will have seen examples of policing organisations which have an approach of policing with fear and only force. We place enormous importance on maintaining and fostering the trust and confidence of our communities and we work hard to ensure we maintain our core values and hold each other to account. Having been a member for 30 years I think the community is justified in having trust and confidence in this organisation. In Canterbury, we want to ensure that people can be safe and feel safe and I’m sure that is a sentiment you will share. Our focus is on reducing harm caused to families, whether that be through violence in the home, death and injury on the roads, drug use or dishonesty offending. We also want to empower communities to work together, support each other and to speak up when something isn’t right. We work very closely with a range of agencies and community groups to ensure people receive the support they need and deserve. Over the past year, we have targeted those bringing illegal drugs and firearms into our communities and, as a result, have seized 140 illegal firearms. Each one of those is potentially a life saved. We have also prevented significant amounts of illegal drugs in getting to our streets. We are very lucky in that we receive a lot of positive feedback from members of the community for the work we do. To those people who have taken the time to contact us, I would like you to know that your words of support mean a lot to myself and my team who come to work every day to make a difference in the lives of everyone so that we can be the safest country.
